My heartfelt sympathy to all of Mary Beth's family and friends. Cousin Mary Beth was a kind and loving person - she was always thoughtful of other people. She had a cheerful and uplifting spirit. It was easy to laugh and find the fun when you were with Mary Beth. Even though she had her share of problems in life her faith in God never wavered - a faith she shared with others. Mary Beth will truly be missed. May God give comfort and keep her in his loving care.
